NPR 'fact-checks' what it calls seven 'not-quite-right' claims about abortion, like fetal pain

We’re glad to see that NPR is stepping up and fact-checking seven persistent claims about abortion. We haven’t read the piece yet, but we’re assuming that they’ll fact-check the claim that it’s “women’s health care.”

NPR reports:

Since the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision ruled that women have a constitutional right to end their pregnancies, proponents and opponents of abortion rights have worked to own the conversation over the issue.

In 2019, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that 629,898 legal induced abortions were reported across the United States.

Lingering claims circulate about abortion, including about the safety of it, who gets abortions and even who supports or opposes access to abortion.

Below, seven popular claims surrounding abortion get fact-checked.

More than 600,000 legal abortions were reported in 2019? So we’re guessing another one of those persistent claims is that supporters of Roe v. Wade believe that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare.

We guess that’s another claim to be fact-checked: that overturning Roe v. Wade would make completely ban abortion.

We noted that NPR relied heavily on data provided by the Guttmacher Institute, a “reproductive health research organization” that supports abortion rights. That’s kind of a weak fact-check.

Abortion is definitely dangerous for the baby.

The authors also write that “Current abortion rates are lower than what they were in 1973 and are now less than half what they were at their peak in the early 1980s, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive health research organization that supports abortion rights.” If they support abortion rights, why do they care if the number of abortions has dropped since the ’80s? It’s almost as if they’re trying to appeal to pro-lifers with that stat: “Look, it’s still hundreds of thousands of abortions each year, but it’s less than it was 40 years ago.” Be pro-abortion … pump those numbers up!
